Euro-BioImaging published its comprehensive Business Plan, summing up recommendations for the construction and operation of the Euro-BioImaging infrastructure that were developed during the Euro-BioImaging Preparatory Phase.
On June 11th, Euro-BioImaging and ELIXIR published a joint collaboration strategy on image data to support access to biological image data and link it to biomolecular data. This collaboration is an important example of two European research infrastructures joining up their technical strategies, which they now look forward to implement in practice. Biological image data is a rapidly changing field and this collaboration strategy will be continuously updated as the two infrastructures develop and as their user needs change over the years.
